Unformatted text preview: ctions (cycloadditions, electrocyclizations, and sigmatropic rearrangements), and organometallic- promoted reactions, with a particular attention to Pd- catalyzed cross- coupling reactions. The factors governing the mechanistic, stereochemical and regiochemical course of these processes will be presented and discussed for each method. For pericyclic reactions, the emphasis will be on how appreciation of the frontier molecular orbitals allows prediction of the reactivity of the systems, as well as relative reaction rates, regiochemistry and stereochemistry.
